About Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent Hospice and Community Services

At the Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent Hospice and community nursing services across Berkshire West, we look after people living with life-limiting conditions and offer support for families too.

Hospice care is the treatment and support we offer to people with life-limiting conditions. We combine specialist medical care for managing pain and other symptoms, with other emotional, practical and spiritual support.

You might stay with us to receive inpatient care for a short time, or a longer stay. We can offer the same care, services and advice to you as a visitor or at home (if you are comfortable, supported and prefer to stay there) via our clinical nurse specialists.

Depending on the care that you or your loved one needs, Sue Ryder provides a comprehensive range of services in Newbury, Reading and Wokingham.

We provide doctors, Sue Ryder nurses, care assistants, physiotherapists, occupational and complementary therapists. Everyone works seamlessly together to support you and your family through the most difficult times.

Watch: What’s it like inside a Sue Ryder hospice?

I expected a hospice to be a depressing place - I could not have been more wrong. Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent Hospice is a place where my family and I all felt safe and looked after, a place that, had my mum been more aware of her surroundings, she too would have loved.
